BYD has received one of its largest single orders to date from a European public transport operator: Vy Buss from Norway ordered 55 electric buses, including BYD’s new 13-metre bus as the first customer worldwide.
The order has now been confirmed at the BYD stand at Busworld in Brussels by Ole Engebret Haugen (CEO) and Hans Petter Sundberg (CTO) of Vy Buss as well as Javier Contijoch (Vice President of Sales) and Edison Yin (Regional Manager Nordic) of BYD Europe.
Specifically, these are 28 examples of BYD’s new 13-metre electric bus, as well as 20 electric buses with a length of 12 metres, and seven articulated electric buses with a length of 18 metres. All vehicles are scheduled for delivery in the second quarter of 2020 and will be used on routes in Oslo, Hamar and Haugesund.
